it came out of the skip in the boatyard, the boys get in the skip usually after the weekend and find all kinds of gear, then you find it at the boat jumble, they give me the old inflatable stuff, i keep bits of them for spares, guess they figured if it hasen't got a transom it's knackered

i have a special mixture of gear to clean the tubes but 3m uv protector will give you the shine.
i did give a bit of my cleaner to a guy and he left a rag on his tube and melted it, i don't give it out no more
